So, you’re getting a new furnace. It may be a significant investment, but an efficient, well-running furnace is key to your comfort. A furnace installation is a big job, and you can expect it to take a few hours. To help make it go as quickly and smoothly as possible, there are a few things you can do to prepare. That way, you’ll be getting back to cozy comfort in no time.
It’s normal for a furnace room to act as storage space. So, if there are items near your furnace or in its path, transfer it a safe distance away for the installation. Remember that the US Air Heating and Cooling technicians will need lots of room around the furnace to move around as they work. Clearing the area will provide them space and will help keep your belongings from being damaged. You can rest easy that our experts will take extra care to keep your house clean and your belongings undamaged. It’s also smart to move any furniture situated in the path to the furnace room.
You should be aware that you may need a new thermostat, depending on the model of your previous furnace. Plus, now is the ideal time to upgrade to a smart thermostat to take full advantage of all the benefits of a new furnace. A smart thermostat can help guarantee peak comfort and keep your indoor space at your desired temperatures 24/7. If you need or would like a new thermostat installed during your furnace installation, you may also want to have touchup paint if it’s a different size or shape from your other thermostat to clean up your wall.
